Binary-Multiple Star Catalogue Update2

07 Aug 2018 09:44

Hi all. Lately I had some free time to spend in writing binary-multiple stars systems for SE. I already done a lot of this binary stars for SE previously and now I finally manage to finish all constellations. Obviously they are all real systems based in astronomic observations.

In this update included the following constellations (all Southern):

Musca, Chamaeleon, Phoenix, Sculptor, Fornax, Hydrus, Mensa, Volans, Dorado, Reticulum, Horologium, Pictor, Columba, Caelum.

In numbers, this update includes:

-72 systems with Stars.
-6 systems with White Dwarfs.
-2 systems with Neutron Stars.
-1 system with a Brown Dwarf (rewrote the code).
-2 systems with Binary stars with planets (rewrote the code).

I also include the previous Update1 for SE0978 so just download this one an overwrite the old one, if you already installed it.

-Unzip the archive
-Copy the "addons" folder in your addons folder where you've installed SE, overwrite if asked
-Copy the "data" folder in your data folder where you've installed SE, overwrite if asked

That's all. Unfortunately when I started to do these catalogues my method to check the binary stars in the wiki was deficient so I skipped some stars in the northern constellations so most probably it will be more updates for these "forgotten" binary-multiple systems. And sorry for my "barbarian" English :P.
